Pop star Gwen Stefani and her husband, rocker Gavin Rossdale recently welcomed a baby, Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale, into the world. Many celebrities contract with a magazine to arrange an exclusive photo session that debuts mother with newborn. But Stefani and Rossdale took a different approach and hired their own photographer and put the photo online for the public under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license, along with some additional terms that allow all print magazines, newspapers, and blogs to use the photo – even commercially, with some restrictions. You can download a high-res version of the photo (and check out the additional terms the photo is available under) at Stefani’s site.

Obanaa .. I did not know that she bore, I do not even know that she is married .. I also admirer …
That’s totally awesome. Although I also like the Jolie/Pitt solution of donating the funds to charity, I like that by releasing a photo herself Stefani has undercut the whole competition to be the “first”.
And it’s a wonderful photo. They both look beautiful!
